WASHINGTON — At the "very core" of Donald Trump is "a faith," Republican Vice Presidential Nominee and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence told hundreds of values voters Saturday morning, as he recalled a time when he and his wife prayed with the billionaire real estate mogul.
At the Family Research Council's annual Values Voters Summit, Pence assured the largely social conservative and evangelical gathering that if he is elected as the next vice president that he would "be your champion."
As some evangelicals still believe that they have to violate their conscience in order to vote for a man like Trump, Pence assured that a Trump-Pence administration will not only restore the political speech of churches, protect religious freedom, enact a 20-week abortion ban and defund Planned Parenthood, but it would also put pro-family policies at the heart of America's restoration. more >>
America's millennials have become the most polarized political group and are more likely to identify as political conservatives now compared to 10 years ago, according to a new study.
The millennials, or those born between 1980 and 1994, are currently more politically polarized than Generation Xers and Baby Boomers, and are also more likely to identify as conservative than either Generation Xers or Baby Boomers were at the same age, says Jean Twenge, professor of psychology at San Diego State University, in a paper published in the latest issue of the journal Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
WASHINGTON — David and Jason Benham told hundreds of evangelical Christians Friday that the "prophetic implications" of Isaiah 59 are happening in America today, as those who publicly defend traditional Christian beliefs are being turned into "prey."
The Benham brothers, successful real estate entrepreneurs who gained notoriety among conservative Christians when their HGTV reality show was canceled because of liberal opposition to their beliefs on homosexuality, spoke for about 20 minutes at the Family Research Council's Values Voters Summit on Friday afternoon and warned that what people are calling the "sexual revolution" is actually more like the moral decay of society.
As Christians around the country — from wedding venders and pizza shop owners to government officials and MLB commentators — are facing social upheaval and massive consequences for voicing and acting on their Christian convictions and opinions, the Benhams suggested that there is a "radical revolution to overtake America." more >>
WASHINGTON — Dr. James Dobson proclaimed to hundreds gathered in the Omni Shoreham Hotel Friday, for the Family Research Council's annual Values Voter Summit his support for Donald Trump as president, his fear of a Hillary Clinton presidency, and revealed he almost retired several times because he was tired of being called a rightwing crazy.
"I am passionately in favor of Donald J. Trump," Dobson states, receiving thunderous applause and cheers.
Under the impression that he was not allowed to be explicitly political in his speech, the 80-year-old host of Family Talk and former head of Focus on the Family gave an impassioned speech, urging all in attendance to support the Republican nominee for president. more >>
WASHINGTON — Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump received a warm reception from a largely evangelical crowd at Family Research Council's annual Values Voters Summit at the Omni Shoreham Hotel on Friday afternoon.
Although many conservative evangelical Christians may still be up in the air about whether or not they can vote for the profane womanizer and billionaire real estate mogul, and other evangelicals have asserted they will vote for anyone but Trump, the evangelicals and social conservatives in attendance were not hesitant to embrace the GOP nominee with a standing ovation as he entered the stage after being introduced by actor Jon Voight.
In his 45-minute speech, Trump thanked evangelical voters for helping him edge out evangelical favorites like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to win the Republican primary and explained that the media and culture today has made it harder to be a Christian. more >>
